QUIET AND COLD…BELOW AVERAGE…DAY AND NIGHT…THEN HERE COMES THE SYSTEM LOTS OF FOLKS ARE INTERESTED IN..LATE WEDNESDAY NIGHT AND THURSDAY…A SPLIT SYSYEM…ONE LOW PASSES NORTHWEST WITH A RE-DEVELOPINGLOW TO OUT SOUTH…GOOD TIMES…TOUGH FORECASTING. THIS THING IS STILL OUT IN THE PACIFIC…NOT GETTING A TRUE SAMPLE YET…THAT TAKES ANOTHER 24 HOURS…AND OF COUSE THE SYSTEM REALLY DOES NOT COME INTO TRUE FOCUS UNTIL IT POPS AND RE-FORMS OVER THE ROCKIES…DOES LEAVE US WITH MUCH TIME…BUT THAT IS THE NAURE OF OUR REGION…WE DEAL WITH IT. ALL THIS SAID…IT LOOKS LIKE THIS COULD START AS SOME SNOW…LATE WEDNESDAY NIGHT AND HEN BECOME A MIX OF SNOW AND MAINLY SLEET QUICKLY THURSDAY MORNING…NOW REAL CONCERNED ABOUT A FREEZING RAIN SITUATION…BUT HAVE TO WATCH…THE MAIN FEATURE AT THI STAGE IS SLEET…MAYBE ENDING AS SOME SNOW THURSDAY EVENING…JUST IN TIME FOR THE SPRING FORECAST…SO A SYSTEM TO WATCH AND STAY UP TO DATE…LETS HAVE SOME FUN AND A GOOD WEEK AHEAD.
